Ferry, puncture, walruses, pigeons, w...

I left the house without my rain jacket on, and within 6 feet, put it on as it started to rain. Well, we were warned, but nevertheless, a baker’s dozen gathered at the swing bridge with the skies delivering the promise of precipitation already. We thus set off promptly from Sutton Weaver, knowing that we […]

Referendum for a new club run. I̵...

Emailed Derek a couple of nights ago to see if he was out on Sunday, eager to hear his stories of his epic 600K Audax. He replied, and as Tilley’s in Bunbury was on the calendar, he suggested a route. ‘Approx 50 from Hartford odd bump.’ he said. ‘I like it!’ I replied, looking at the […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

The weather has been pretty unpredictable in terms of when the rain is going to come down, so I didn’t expect a large turnout this evening. Clearly, there are many eyes on the Cup this year, as we had a total of 25 (19 club) riders turn up to take their chances. Fortunately, as with […]

Ferry across the Mersey ride – ...

Hi – yes its summer, so its time for the Ferry across the Mersey ride. This is a reminder post just in case you’ve forgotten to book the day of work – or for those who don’t look at the calendar! I’ve moved to an earlier date to avoid the school holidays and it will be on […]

Pedal Powering along…

No club runs today, but we did have a stand at Pedal Power this year again. A day of showers and not showers looked like it didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the many sportive participants and the other stallholders, with all sorts of food, drink and stuff on display and for sale. Starley Bikes had […]

WVCC Club (nearly*) 10(s) – 2 u...

It appeared that the slight change in climatic conditions with sporadic heavy showers punctuating the sweltering heat, gave rise to what is sometimes deemed in time trialling terms as a ‘floater'(!) Perhaps perfect conditions for some excellent times. In some respects, it’s a shame that this wasn’t Guardian Cup round 5, as there would have been […]

Guide Dogs, team orders, glorious sun...

Wow. What a day. Hot, hot, hot. It was great to meet at the club and get on our way to feel the breeze on a hot day. We all gathered for 1 ride today, and set off for a ride to the Ice Cream Farm. As we rode down the entrance drive from the […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

A difficult evening to read as the riders turned up to sign on tonight. A bit heavy perhaps, but a cross-tailwind start, and even a bit of a tail-finish. This of course meant that there would be a headwind on the A50. Never good. Nevertheless, 24 riders started, hoping to snatch at least a second […]

Guide Dogs for the Blind – Tour...

Guide Dogs for the Blind – Tour de Tattenhall – 5th June 2016 What’s that all about then? Well, it’s been a couple of years since we’ve teamed up with Guide Dogs for the Blind – http://www.guidedogs.org.uk for a day to a) raise a bit of money for this worthy charitable cause, and b) to have a […]

WVCC Club 10s – Guardian Cup Ro...

Well, another change in the weather. Who could have thought? A heavy, damp and drizzly night reduced the willing field to 17 riders this evening. It was going to be a case of gritting your teeth, and just getting on with it, to hope not to lose too much time from your target PB! This was […]

Mow Cop – The return of the Kil...

It was definitely time to put Mow Cop back on the club run scene. Normally only reserved for long runs, we decided it would be a good idea to give it a go, then try out a new club run cafe highly recommended by one of us who had spotted a sign last time we were […]

As a club, we’d like to wish Andrew Simpson @simmo_on_sport all the best for the future, with a heartfelt thanks for supporting WVCC all these years....
